The CCCBA IP section meeting was pretty well attended and thanks to one of our attendees, we received a copy of the new interim guidelines for patent examiners related to the Bilski case and, in general, the patentability of business method and software claims.
I've attached a link to the document at the USPTO: http://www.uspto.gov/news/pr/2010/10_35.jsp
You'll note that the public comment period is still open. So, if you'd like to comment on the proposed guidelines I'd recommend you do so now.
